Quality of teaching / language progress: Accommodation: 1 star: bedroom next to 5 lane boulevard, much noise day and night, meals: the lady Milagros couldn't cook at all, she spoke very fast so I couldn't understand her, she didn't do an effort to speak slow. At the end I lost 2 kilos and got sick of course with the change of the temperatures. Conclusion: not to recommend for older people. I didn't complain to her not to disturb the atmosphere. 1 thing positive: an extra visit on Sunday with her family to different interesting places.
